On Sept. 17th, the Dunbar Bulldogs faced the LCA Eagles for Senior Night. Because it was senior night, senior players were mentioned and walked out with their families before the start of the game. 

The game began with Dunbar attempting many shots, mainly by #17 Pablo Ortiz, all blocked by LCA. The Bulldogs gained possession of the ball but failed to score with the ball sailing high above the goal. 

Dunbar continued to have an aggressive defense, keeping LCA out of the goal. LCA also managed to keep Dunbar from scoring and attempted some goals of their own, but with no luck. 

With five minutes left in the first half, the Bulldogs made an attempt, but it was blocked. LCA then substitutes a player and receives a foul. 

This gave #14 Isacc Cano a free-kick, which ends up flying too high. Towards the end of the first half, Dunbar made a few attempts, but all are deflected. The end score of the first half is tied 0-0.

Dunbar kicked off the 2nd half and made a shot, which is stopped by LCA once again. #17
